About The Book

A beautiful book of delicious, fail-safe recipes and delightful stories from Australia’s favourite home cook, Belinda Jeffery.

There are several things you can be sure of when cooking with Belinda Jeffery. Her food will be mouth-wateringly good, her flavours simple and fresh, and her recipes never fail.

These are the essential dishes Belinda makes time and again – recipes that tell stories of family and friendship and hold a special place in her heart. Many were originally published 20 years ago, and by popular demand Belinda has revisited and polished favourite recipes in her repertoire to reflect the way she cooks now – and added a handful of new ones. With Belinda’s wise and warm encouragement, this book is just like having her by your side in your own kitchen.
